Over the years, many customers have requested that more of the ActiveControl configuration be transportable – to enable them to make changes to ActiveControl more consistent with how they make changes in standard SAP – and to help them avoid the need to manually redo configuration via the ActiveControl Windows GUI in Production Domain Controller after having tested the configuration in the Development Domain Controller.
Newer ActiveControl functionality such as the Rules Engine is already transportable – and many customers already utilise this to move Rules Engine configuration from their Development to Production Domain Controller after testing. ActiveControl 9.00 starts to introduce more transportable configuration within ActiveControl.
As part of ActiveControl 9.00 – it is now possible to optionally configure (and transport) the following configuration via SM30 instead of configuring via the Windows GUI.
It is possible to configure via either Windows GUI or the SAPGUI – it is not possible to configure the same entities of ActiveControl within both.
The default is Windows GUI. To switch to SAPGUI, the flag must be set via flag in table /BTI/TE_TBL_FLAG in the Domain Controller (using SM30).
Please refer to this online Change Note for further details of the setup required for this optional capability of ActiveControl.
